On rare occasions, a student may not be able to wear the correct uniform. When this situation occurs, the student should arrive to school with a note signed by a parent/carer which clearly outlines the reason and gives a date for when the uniform will be corrected. We have a number of clean, used, uniforms in school that students may be asked to wear.



Students wearing the incorrect uniform may be required to return home to change and/or receive a sanction according to the school behaviour policy.

The decision regarding the suitability of the uniform will be taken by the Head of Year and Senior Leadership Team.
